You may have recently read on my blog about some scary ingredients found in lipstick . (If you missed it, you can read it here.) Well I'm sure you can imagine that I have a whole lot more to say about the subject! In the recent past I stopped carrying a popular product that's main ingredient was talc. Talc is an extremely common ingredient in cosmetics. Did you know that talc can be linked to lung disease, ovarian cancer and mesothelioma because it is sometimes contaminated with asbestos which is a known carcinogen? Johnson & Johnson is facing more than 16,800 talc-related lawsuits, most filed on behalf of individuals, as well as investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice. It will be interesting to see how the talc lawsuits play out, you can read a little about talc and the J & J lawsuits here and also here.
Many mainstream skincare products and cosmetics also contain a cocktail of hundreds of undisclosed chemicals they call "fragrance". These fragrance concoctions can actually interrupt your natural hormones and cause all kinds of havoc on your health. These are just a couple of examples. The funny thing about it is (funny-weird, not funny-haha) is that there are plenty of ingredients out there that are healthy and makeup with clean ingredients is much more accessible and more affordable than ever, so there is no reason to use toxic formulas once you've learned how to spot them!
That's where I come in... Label reading and analyzing has become a mission of sorts for me so you don't have to learn it if you don't want to! I do Clean Your Routine sessions in person or if you have a specific question and are currently using something you are not sure about you can also email or call me and I'll be happy to answer your questions.
